Sitting is not just a habit but also a disease. Our desk job forces us to sit for long hours. This excessive sitting habit builds pressure on our backbones, causing discomfort on the back, neck, shoulders, arms, and other parts. Only an ergonomically designed work environment can save workers from these health conditions. Ergonomics is a science that re-designs office furniture to offer a better working environment for people. An ergonomically designed standing desk eases your backbone from prolonged sitting. Also, the demand for these desks is increasing every day.
Prolonged sitting increases stress on your back, your back muscles, and spinal disks. This poor sitting habit damages your spinal structure and causes back and neck pain often. Good health will boost your work quality automatically. But, this unhealthy work culture will end up lowering your quality of work. Therefore, many companies have already introduced standing desks for their employees to keep them healthy at work.
Here are a few things you can change in your work environment to enjoy an active and health-supportive work culture.
Sit comfortably as close as possible to your desk, keeping your upper arms parallel to your spine. Ensure that your hands rest on the desktop and maintain the 90-degree elbow angle.
It is an important thing to consider when you are correcting your sitting posture. You can measure it by checking the distance from the leading edge of the chair to your thigh. If space is more than the width of a finger, raise your desk and chair to sit comfortably.
Pass your clenched fist between the back of your calf and the front of your chair. If you cannot perform this easily, adjust your chair ergonomically. Adjust your backrest and use lumbar support.
Rest your lower back against the back of your chair. You can use a cushion to keep your lower back in the right position that prohibits you from slumping forward. This sitting habit reduces the strain on your back. When you hunch over your keyboard, it causes extra pressure on your spine.
The top of your computer screen must be at your eye level. Ensure that you can comfortably see your computer screen without tilting your head.
The use of armrests reduces pressure on your neck and shoulders. The armrests lift your arms slightly at your shoulders.
This ergonomic setup is beneficial when you use a regular chair. These days, people shift their attention to an ergonomic chair that supports your back and improves your spine health for the desk job.
